5 Amazing Developments you will Live to See. The world is developing and these are some of the amazing developments that we will live to see in our lifetime! Enjoy!
5. Prosthetics with feel
Current prosthetic hands do little beyond filling the arm-shaped space between your body and the air. Sure, they can grasp things all right, and they help in balance, but they lack one of the human hand's most important abilities — the sense of touch. A research team at the University of Chicago has solved this problem, producing hands that send electric signals to the brain…
4. Peak Population
The worldwide human population has been going up for the last 15,000 years and has increased tenfold in the last 300. The best estimates reckon we hit seven billion a couple of years ago, only 12 years after we hit six billion. It'll probably take just over another decade to hit eight billion.
3. The Mammal Apocalypse
A quarter of the world's 4,000 mammal species are under threat of extinction in the next 30 years. Many scientists predict we could be living in a world without elephants, rhinos, and lions within a quarter of a century. Gorillas are also facing extinction as they are hunted for meat, and their habitats are destroyed by timber and mining operations.
2. Fingers That Store Digital Files
When Finnish programmer Jerry Jalava had a motorcycle accident in 2008 and lost a finger, one surgeon joked that Jalava should go out and buy a "USB finger drive." He decided to go ahead and actually build a prosthetic finger that contains two gigabytes of digital storage. He can now jack his finger into a computer just by peeling back the nail to expose the USB plug.
1. Cars that drive themselves
The biggest company working on this concept is google. There are cars already with all sorts of perks that will be needed eventually to have cars drive themselves entirely. We predict this one to happen soon. Robots will be MUCH better drivers than we are and it would be a "fix" for drunk driving as well.
